A storybook ending... {Book Cake with Crayons}

Yet another cake for school... this one was for the end of year party for Hannah's class, and a thankyou to her great teachers. Since almost all 2 and 3 year olds LOVE story time, this was an easy choice!!

Poker, anyone?? {Poker Table Cake}

Believe it or not, the hardest thing about this cake was deciding what the winning hand should be... a royal flush just seemed too unrealistic!!

Head of the class... {Classroom Teacher Thankyou Cake}

To thank Leah's teachers for a great year of playschool, I made this cake. I tried my best to make each child look semi-realistic (i.e. curly hair, pigtails, etc)... and I was just a little sad to see them eaten up, they were soooo cute!!!

And, my inspirations...

Lots of dots {Modern Dot Cake with Initial}

This was my best attempt at a "modern looking" cake. I made it for a sip-n-see for my definitely non-traditional friend, Sarah, to celebrate the arrival of her third little boy, Dexter. It ended up better than I was hoping... with layers and layers of fondant (it's amazing there was actually cake underneath to be eaten)!
